Birmingham vs Newcastle United
English Football League Championship
Date: 18th March 2017, Saturday
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: St. Andrews, Birmingham.
It’s been 3 games now without a win for Birmingham and just one victory in their last five games. This has seen the club drop to 17th and they only have a six-point safety gap. A win at the weekend would be greatly welcomed.
However, Birmingham’s home form is just as bad as their overall form where they have lost 3 games in a row. And they are conceding too with 8 goals shipped in those matches.
Newcastle United are top of the Championship on 77 points shared with Brighton but have the Magpies hit a bad run of form? They followed up a 0-0 draw with Reading by losing their next game to Fulham 3-1 at home.
But Newcastle does have the best away record in the league with 42 points won from a possible 57. They have also collected 11 points from their last 15 on offer.
Birmingham vs Newcastle United: Head to Head Stats
The teams last met in the FA Cup in January where they played out a 1-1 draw at St. Andrews. In league matches, Newcastle won just once in almost 20 years, though the majority of these games have ended up as a draw. Two of the last three matches here have ended with the correct score of 1-1.
Birmingham v Newcastle United: Prediction
Can Newcastle get a rare away win at Birmingham? We are going to say yes. Birmingham’s overall form is just too poor at the moment and United manager Rafa Benitez will have been furious at his sides recent showings. Newcastle have been the best side in the Championship so far and they should have enough quality to get all three points here.
